One of the major considerations of any environmental resource project must be the effect on human well-being; originally published in 1979, this study aims to deal specifically with the transmission of Schistosomiasis as a human environmental impact. Due to its relationship with water, Schistosomiasis transmission areas can be spread or aggravated by new water resource projects particularly in developing countries, which could potentially lead to an epidemic situation. Rosenfield aims to demonstrate how prevention ideas can be conceived early on in the design process by exploring methodologies for predicting the prevalence of Schistosomiasis in certain areas and management strategies for controlling transmission. This title will be of interest to students of Environmental Studies and professionals.
